Windows 7 release date confirmed

/ 10 years ago

You may remember us informing you that Windows 7 was boxed and ready and at the highlight of the pre-product launch Microsoft were defending the pricing structure. It has now come to light that a release date has been set in stone.

After us giving you a date in a previous article. Microsoft have officially announced the release date as 22nd October 2009, the same as we predicted. As we all know, Windows 7 is the highly anticipated operating system that should rejuvenate Microsoft’s shares after a fallen attempt with Windows Vista.

Windows Vista was the most slated operating system that Microsoft have produced, attracting bad press from every angle. Can Windows 7 give them some dignity and respect back?

Companies are already holding pre-order processes in place so that you can buy Windows 7 early, months before it’s appearance on shelves.

Also, just as with the XP/Vista transition, many new pre-built computers, and laptops with Windows Vista, will be offered an upgrade to Windows 7, when released.

If you are wondering what all of the hype is about, you can find out for yourself by downloading the release candidate.
